Three women, three neighbourhoods, three flats. Housing, heartland, home. What will you find in their Housing Development Board flats?

Amidst the backdrop of Singapore’s celebrated and politicised public housing intended for families, 03-Flats follows the domestic existence of three single women who are striving for independence at different stages of their lives. It juxtaposes the nationalistic ambitions of a state-driven housing program against the occupants’ struggles to preserve personal routines, traditions and aspirations.

03-Flats embodies prosaic domesticity wherein existence becomes spontaneous and life ironically escapes formulation. 03-Flats is a key filmic output of a research initiative led by Dr Lilian Chee (Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore). Dr Chee conceptualised the project and made the film in collaboration with award-winning Singaporean filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin (13 Little Pictures) to probe how domesticity—a critical component wherein home is produced—may be viscerally represented and experientially encountered.
